This Week’s Verse: “A person should consider us in this way: as servants of Christ and managers of God’s mysteries. In this regard, it is expected of managers that each one of them be found faithful.” 1 Corinthians 4:1-2 (HCSB)
One of the hardest things to do when being a Christian is remembering to be faithful to God and His calling for our lives. Our world revolves around people looking out for themselves and mercilessly climbing to the top of whatever social or economic ladder they choose to climb. Because of that, and our sinful nature, remembering God is the main focus of our lives is hard.
Last week, I talked about being dependent on God for everything. We have to remember to be faithful to Him, even when we’ve pledged our dependence on Him.
You can be dependent on God every day of your life, but there can still be a disconnect between you and Him. When you’re actively dependent on God, you’re relying on your faith in Him. And there are ways to strengthen your faith, like reading your Bible daily and being in constant prayer with God. Building your relationship with God is an important thing, especially since, as Paul says in 1 Corinthians, we are the servants of Christ. We should want to know our Creator more and grow in Him.
Continuing to live out your faith day-to-day is not for the faint-hearted. It requires discipline and devotion to God. But, because of His sovereign love, even when you mess up and fail, He is always in your corner.
Prayer: Father, I thank You for Your love and for sustaining me. Help me continue to serve You with a grateful heart, and learn to be faithful to You. Amen.
